REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE ELECTION INTEGRITY UPDATES
Educate. Advocate. Mitigate. Activate!
Over the past year many have asked me, what is the RNC doing about Election Integrity? The answer is, quite a lot. The main objective of the RNC’s Election Integrity program is to Protect and Champion Voter Rights and Build Trust in the Election Process.
Below is a summary of state litigation and state legislation highlights and important election integrity news. Please see the document at the bottom the of this article for pending litigation, including cases in which the RNC is involved.
There are several pending voting lawsuits in Arizona:
On March 3, 2023, Restoring Integrity and Trust in Elections (RITE) and the Arizona Free Enterprise Club sued Arizona Secretary of State Fontes. The lawsuit demonstrates how Governor Katie Hobbs violated state law in her previous role as Secretary of State by authorizing an illegal expansion of the database of signatures used to verify ballots, including the addition of potentially unreliable signatures. On March 13, 2023, the Elias Law Group moved to intervene in the case on behalf of Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans. On March 21, Mi Familia Vota moved to intervene in the litigation.
Mi Familia Vota v. Hobbs (AKA Mi Familia Vota I):
Filed in August 2021, challenging S.B. 1485, which removes voters from the permanent mail ballot list if a voter does not vote by mail in two straight election cycles; and SB1003, which requires voters to “cure” signature-less ballots by 7PM on Election Day.
The RNC and the NRSC are intervenor-defendants. The DCCC and DSCC also intervened as plaintiffs. DOJ filed a statement of interest in the case in November 2021.
On June 24, 2022, the court granted in part and denied in part defendants’ motion to dismiss. The court (1) allowed plaintiffs to pursue their claim that SB1485 was enacted with a discriminatory intent, and (2) dismissed the remaining claims but granted plaintiffs’ leave to file an amended complaint. The plaintiffs and plaintiff-intervenors opted not to amend their complaints.
On August 15, 2022, the RNC joined the Attorney General’s 54(b) motion to enter judgment on the dismissed claims.
HB 2492 (Proof of Citizenship) Challenges:
There are eight lawsuits challenging HB2492 (and other legislation) that require proof of citizenship for registrants using the National Voter Registration Form:
Six of the lawsuits were consolidated. The RNC was granted intervention in all the cases.
On December 27, 2022, the State filed a motion to dismiss. The motion to dismiss was denied on February 16, 2023.
Republican National Committee v. Richer:
On October 4, the RNC and the Republican Party of Arizona (RPAZ) sued Maricopa County to compel the county to release public records relating to hiring and placing poll workers, including whether they are following state law requiring equal representation by both parties. A hearing was held on October 19, 2022. Maricopa has filed a motion for judgment on the pleadings.
Attorney General Contest:
AZ Attorney General candidate Abe Hamadeh and the RNC remain in a pending election contest. A motion for a new trial is pending. After the recount, Hamadeh’s deficit decreased to 280 votes. A motion for a new trial is pending. Top Republican legislators filed an amicus brief in support of Hamadeh.
On December 5, 2022, a liberal group represented by Perkins Coie filed a lawsuit alleging signature matching disproportionately disenfranchises young people, people with disabilities, and people of color. On December 22, 2022, the plaintiffs filed an amended complaint. On February 6, 2023, plaintiffs filed a second amended complaint. On February 28, 2023, the Secretary of State filed a motion to dismiss.
The State of Florida, RNC, and NRSC are awaiting the 11th Circuit’s ruling in a pending appeal of the challenge to SB90, Florida’s 2021 election reform legislation. On March 31, 2022, the district court permanently enjoined multiple provisions of SB90 including the required registration disclaimers for third party voter registration organizations (§ 97.0575(3)(a)), registration delivery provisions for third party voter registration organizations (id.), drop box regulations (§§ 101.69(2)-(3)), and line warming provisions (§§ 102.031(4)(a)-(b)). On May 6, 2022, the 11th Circuit granted the defendants’ stay request, leaving in effect provisions previously struck down by the lower court and rejecting the district court’s order to put Florida under “preclearance” for 10 years. The RNC is currently awaiting a decision from the 11th Circuit on the appeal of the trial court’s ruling.
On March 16, the Elias Law Group filed a lawsuit in federal court alleging that Florida’s wet signature requirement for voter registration applications violates the materiality clause of the Civil Rights Act.
In July 2021, the RNC, NRSC, NRCC, and GA GOP were granted intervention in 8 lawsuits, including the DOJ’s lawsuit against the state, challenging provisions of SB202. Previously, the court denied motions to dismiss for lack of standing and on the merits, filed by the RNC, other Republican organizations, and Republican lawmakers in Georgia in the suits. On June 30, 2022, the court denied plaintiffs’ motion for preliminary injunction in the Vote America suit. On August 18, 2022, the court denied plaintiff’s motion for a preliminary injunction regarding the line warming ban claim. In the Vote America suit, the State joined by the RNC have filed a motion for summary judgement.
One of the plaintiffs who challenged SB202 as violating its First Amendment right to distribute absentee ballot applications as speech voluntarily dismissed its claims against Secretary of State Raffensperger. After litigating the case for well over a year, the plaintiff concluded its practices did not violate SB 202.
On May 2, 2022, a group of liberal organizations sued Georgia’s Election Board challenging a state law that requires handwritten signatures on absentee ballot applications. The groups seek declaratory and injunctive relief, requesting the court find that the so-called Pen and Ink rule violates the Civil Rights Act and to enjoin its enforcement. The RNC and GAGOP have intervened in the litigation. On March 9, 2023, the court defendants’ denied defendants' motion to dismiss.
Liberal groups represented by Perkins Coie sued the state of Idaho for that eliminates the use of student IDs as an acceptable form of identification in the state.
The RNC, Iowa GOP, NRCC, and NRSC were granted intervention to defend against a lawsuit challenging provisions of SF413 and SF568. The trial set for March 21, 2022, was pushed back in light of discovery disputes between the Iowa legislature and plaintiffs. On March 16, 2022, the IA Supreme Court granted certiorari to resolve these discovery disputes. After a hearing over the ongoing discovery disputes on July 15, 2022, the court issued an order compelling discovery on August 18, 2022.
On March 17, the Kansas Court of Appeals ruled that challenges to voting laws under the state constitution be evaluated under strict scrutiny instead of the more flexible Anderson-Burdick standard utilized in federal claims and in many states.
On March 28, 2023, the U.S. District Court in Maine ruled in favor of the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), finding that the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) prohibits preempts Maine state law imposing fines and use restrictions on voter roll data, because which the state law creates obstacles to the transparency Congress intended under the NVRA. Maine’s Secretary of State had denied a request for voter rolls that PILF made in 2019. Maine passed a law that would restrict use and impose fines for unauthorized use of voter rolls produced to a requester.
On September 30, 2022, the RNC and MI GOP sued Secretary of State Benson after she issued last-minute guidance on election challengers. Plaintiffs allege the guidance is inconsistent with state law and previous guidance and request the court to reinstate the 2020 challenger procedures. On November 3, 2022, the MI Supreme Court stayed the lower court’s decision. The case remains open at the MI Court of Appeals where the state has appealed the trial court’s preliminary injunction order. RNC and MIGOP’s opening brief is due on April 28.
On March 13, 2023, the RNC and MIGOP filed its appellate brief in a suit challenging Flint’s refusal to hire an equal number of Republican and Democrat election inspectors. The lower court had ruled the parties did not have standing to bring the claim.
In June 2022, Democrats filed two cases challenging SB 418 in NH which would require voters registering on Election Day to mail in proof of their identity within 7 days if they did not have documentation at the polling place. On September 1, 2022, the NH Republican State Committee motioned to intervene which was denied on December 21, 2022, and the NHRSC appealed. On March 17, 2023, the NH Supreme Court granted cert to hear the appeal of the denial of intervention.
The RNC, NRCC, and New York State Republican Committee intervened in a case brought by Democrats challenging NY ballot rejection practices. On May 13, 2022, the court granted the RNC’s motion to intervene. On July 13, 2022, the court denied the Democrats’ motion for a preliminary injunction except that local election boards must allow the existing notice and cure procedures shall be applied to absentee ballots missing postmarks received between 2 and 7 days after Election Day for the upcoming 2022 elections. On August 5, 2022, the court granted the parties’ joint motion to stay further proceedings until after the November 2022 elections. On March 2, 2023, Plaintiffs, represented by Marc Elias, filed a voluntary dismissal of the suit, handing a major win to the RNC, NRCC, and NYGOP.
In January 2022, the RNC and NYGOP, leading a broad bipartisan coalition of officeholders and concerned citizens, including Congresswoman Malliotakis and naturalized citizen voters, sued Mayor Eric Adams, the New York City Council, and the New York City Board of Elections in state court over the “Non-Citizen Voting Law,” which illegally allows non-citizens to vote in city elections. On June 27, 2022, Judge Porzio struck down the Non-Citizen Voting Law, explaining in his opinion that it violates the New York Constitution, New York election law, and the Municipal Home Rule Law. Appellees filed their appellate brief on October 10, 2022. On December 11, 2022, RNC filed its opening brief. The city and intervenors filed reply briefs on January 9, 2023.
In February 2023, four voters brought a lawsuit in New York Supreme Court in Erie County against the Erie County Board of Elections. The lawsuit seeks an order of the court directing the commissioners of elections to count, canvass, and tally the write- in primary votes of candidates regardless of their party affiliation in primary elections. On March 28, 2023, the court for the Petitioners and found that Chapter 480 of the Laws of 2021 was facially unconstitutional.
On March 20, 2023, the federal district court for the Western District of North Carolina denied a motion to dismiss by the state in an NVRA challenge brought by two citizens in the state. The court also declined to adopt the Magistrate Judge’s recommendation to dismiss the suit for lack of sufficient pre-suit notice. The court also denied the motion to intervene by the League of Women Voters of North Carolina and the North Carolina A. Philip Randolph Institute. The suit alleges that North Carolina is failing to maintain accurate voter rolls and that the state is allowing ineligible voters to vote in the state’s elections. This is an important ruling to review for those interested in voter registration list maintenance issues.
On January 6th, 2023, Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless, Ohio Federation of Teachers, Ohio Alliance for Retired Americans, and Union Veterans Council represented by Elias Group sued the Ohio Secretary of State challenging Ohio’s new election integrity bill: H.B. 458. The lawsuit challenges the in-person voter ID requirements, deadlines for ballot curing, and provisions regarding applications for and returning mail ballots. Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint on January 27, 2023. On March 21, 2023, the Ohio Republican Party and two citizens and poll workers moved to intervene in the litigation.
On September 1, 2022, the RNC, NRSC, NRCC, Pennsylvania GOP, and 12 individual voters sued Pennsylvania and all 67 counties for unlawful ballot curing in violation of state law and the U.S. Constitution. On October 21, 2022, the PA Supreme Court ruled 3-3 on the legality of the practice thus upholding the PA Commonwealth Court’s ruling denying the RNC’s and other plaintiffs’ preliminary injunction motion. The case remains open. On March 23, 2023, the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court dismissed the case on subject matter jurisdiction grounds and ignored the merits of curing. The RNC and other parties are evaluating options for appeal.
Following the RNC’s win in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruling that ballots must be signed and dated as required by state law, the NAACP and John Fetterman filed two separate lawsuits in federal court. The RNC, NRCC, and PA GOP were granted intervention in the case and filed a motion to dismiss both cases. The NAACP amended its complaint with an Equal Protection claim comparing the requirements under the state statute and federal UOCAVA requirements. On January 17, 2023, the RNC filed a motion to dismiss in NAACP. On February 17, 2023, the RNC filed a motion to dismiss the amended complaint in Eakin.
On February 8, 2023, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court issued an opinion in the RNC’s state court undated ballot case.
On March 28, 2023, two voters supported by Lawyers Democracy Fund brought a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania alleging a violation of the First and Fourteenth Amendment right to vote and due process in Luzerne County. The claims arise from the 2022 midterm election when Luzerne County failed to supply enough ballot paper on Election Day.
The DOJ sued the State of Texas and the Secretary of State, challenging provisions of SB1, Texas’ 2021 voting integrity legislation. The DOJ claims SB1 violates Section 208 of the Voting Rights Act and Section 101 of the Civil Rights Act. The RNC, NRCC, NRSC, and Dallas and Harris County Republican Parties initial moved to intervene in the suits was denied. The party committees appealed and the 5th Circuit reversed and ruled that the Republican committees were entitled to intervention as of right. On May 24, the court denied plaintiff’s motion to dismiss. On May 31, 2022, the court granted the parties’ unopposed motion to stay pending appeal.

On August 2, 2022, the court granted in part and denied in part defendants’ motion to dismiss, further limiting the claims allowed to proceed. Two interlocutory appeals as to the court’s August 2 judgment were filed in the 5th Circuit.
On March 9, 2023, the RNC, the Vermont Republican Party, and two concerned citizens supported by RITE brought a complaint for declaratory and injunctive relief applying an earlier Vermont Supreme Court ruling to challenge Winooski’s charter that allows noncitizens to vote in school board elections and on school budget questions. Local press article on the lawsuit. Since the results of these elections have statewide budget and policy impacts outside of the municipality, the Vermont constitution limits voting on those issues to United States citizens. The RNC and VTGOP previously sued the cities of Montpelier and Winooski over their town charters in a facial challenge that the Vermont Constitution categorically did not permit non-citizens to vote in any Vermont elections. On January 20, 2023, the VT Supreme Court held that the lower court properly dismissed the Montpelier case but ruled that plaintiffs had standing and opened up the door for a future as-applied challenge.
On November 11, 2022, Perkins Coie law firm filed a lawsuit alleging signature matching disproportionately disenfranchises young people, people with disabilities, and people of color. On December 16, 2022, the plaintiffs filed an amended complaint. On January 12, 2023, the RNC and WA GOP filed a motion to intervene in the case. Plaintiffs oppose the intervention, and the state has taken no position. On February 7, 2023, the court denied the motion to intervene filed by RNC and WA GOP. On March 20, 2023, the RNC and WAGOP appealed the denial with the Washington Court of Appeals. Rather than attempt to make changes to the law through the legislature, left-wing groups and their Democrat allies are attempting to do away with the entire verification process through the courts. They have filed a lawsuit attempting to remove signature verification from our election process. This is a blatantly partisan attempt to remove the only security measure our elections have to protect against fraudulent activity.
On March 22, 2023, a complaint was filed with the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) against Tech for Campaigns for violations of Wisconsin election law . The complaint alleges the organization is providing improper assistance in completing a ballot and engaging in ballot harvesting.
On September 23, 2022, an individual voter supported by the RNC and Restoring Integrity and Trust in Elections (“RITE”) sued the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) over WEC’s guidance that allowed absentee voters to change their votes after they are cast. RISE and the DNC filed motions to intervene. On October 5, the court sided with the plaintiff and granted a temporary restraining order, giving WEC until 4pm, October 7 to withdraw the unlawful guidance. On October 7, the DNC appealed the temporary injunction order and requested a stay of a temporary injunction with the WI Court of Appeals. On October 10, the appeals court granted the temporary stay pending a decision and requested a briefing on whether to grant the petition for an interlocutory appeal. Also on October 10, plaintiffs requested their case be transferred to a different court of appeals pursuant to state law. On October 12, the WI Supreme Court upheld the temporary stay, ordered briefing on the petition to file an interlocutory appeal, and asked the WI Court of Appeals to step aside until the high court issued a ruling on the venue issue.
A left-wing group, Rise, represented by Marc Elias, sued WEC on September 27 in a collateral attack on the White ruling argues that election officials should be allowed to accept absentee ballots with partial witness addresses if the official can discern the correct information. On October 3, the Wisconsin state legislature and Michael and Eva White filed motions to intervene. On October 6, the court granted the Wisconsin state legislature’s motion to intervene and declined the Whites’ motion to intervene. At a hearing on October 7, the court denied plaintiff’s motion for a temporary injunction, thus reinforcing that an address is complete if it contains “a street number, street name and name of municipality.” On December 22, 2022, the Whites filed an appeal of the ruling denying their intervention. On February 28, the Whites, as proposed-intervenors , filed their reply brief. There is also a pending League of Women Voters suit on the issue.
State Legislation Highlights:
State Sen. Clyde Chambliss sponsored SB9 and SB10. SB9 would require that the state’s electronic voting counting system must require the use of a paper ballot that is marked and inspected by the voter prior to being cast and counted. SB 10 prohibits the use of electronic vote counting systems that are capable of connecting to the Internet or cell phone networks or that possess modem technology.
House Bill 2961 sponsored by Rep. Justin Heap (R-District 10) and co-sponsored by Rep. John Gillette (R- Kingman) would require county supervisors to provide a chain of custody record for ballots, including the time and signature of each supervisor beginning at the printing locations to the transportation, storage and delivery to the county recorder/officer in charge of elections and to any voting location. It would also require ballot boxes to be locked with a “tamper evident seal.” Law enforcement would also need to be present during the lock box transferring phase.
Senate Bill 222 cleared the Senate 32-21 along party lines. The House passed the bill in another primarily party-line vote, now it is headed to Gov. Kemp’s desk for signature. The bill expands the limitations set by the state’s 2021 voting law, which prevented nonprofits from providing any funding directly to local election officials.
State Senators voted 23-12 to pass HB 340, which would strengthen identification and proof of residency requirements for voting and voter registration. It removes student ID as a valid form of identification and requires the transportation department to issue a free photo ID card to those who need them for voting.
LD 1038, also known as “An Act to Reinstate Plurality Voting by Repealing the Ranked-choice Voting Laws,” was sponsored by Representative Edward Polewarczyk. The bill stipulates that “the person who receives a plurality of the votes cast for election to any office, as long as there is at least one vote cast for that office, is elected to that office.” The bill also includes the same provisions for primary elections.
Under the policy outlined in HB 1310, county registrars offices must survey their voter rolls every presidential election cycle. If someone has not voted at least once since the primary election in the previous presidential election cycle, they will be placed on inactive status and sent a letter asking if they still live at that location. Republican Representative Brent Powell says the registered voter will then have 4 more years to act before they are removed from voter rolls.
Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed HB 4 into law. The legislation will establish a permanent absentee voter list and remove barriers to voting on tribal lands. The measure also will automate voter registration during certain Motor Vehicle Division transactions and will assist in giving people exiting prison after a felony conviction voting ability.
The Senate passed HB 1273, which would prohibit rank-choice voting and approval voting systems throughout the state of North Dakota, including Fargo where the last two elections have utilized approval voting. The vote passed 33-13, and with the House's 74-19 vote on Feb. 15, clears the two-thirds majority threshold needed to override a potential veto from Gov. Doug Burgum.
Democrats lawmakers have advanced SB 579, which would allow people who are incarcerated in the state to vote. SB 579 would allow anyone “in the physical custody of a jail, prison or correctional facility” in Oregon to register to vote, update a voter registration and vote. Under the bill, the person would be allowed to vote in elections using the address and county he or she last resided at before being incarcerated.
The Senate passed Bill S.32, which would put ranked-choice voting in place for Vermont’s 2028 presidential primary. The legislation would also create a summer study committee to investigate and make recommendations about other statewide elections that may be ready for ranked-choice voting in 2026. And it would give the power to cities and towns to adopt it for local elections as soon as next year. The bill requires approval once more before heading to the House.
SB 5082: The WA State Democrats want to Abolish Advisory Votes. Currently voters get an opportunity to weigh in on taxes that were passed by the Legislature without their direct approval. "Advisory Votes" are often the only time voters hear of a new tax. Since 2012, advisory votes on 38 tax increases have appeared on the ballot. Why would Democrats pass a bill that would abolish advisory votes? Perhaps it is because most every time the voters get an opportunity to go on the record, they overwhelmingly vote agaist raising taxes by huge margins. In truth Dems just don't like what the voters have to say, and falsely claim (without ANY supporting data) that banning advisory votes would encourage more voter participation. In truth this eliminates Democracy. The answer is to listen to the voters instead of stealing their voice. More here
